About The Wine
Riesling sings in the hands of Duncan Forsyth.
This wine shows a textural, off-dry style of Central Otago Riesling that drinks beautifully now or could cellar for a decade plus.
The fruit is all organically farmed, then whole-bunch pressed and allowed to finish ferment with a little residual sugar in the wine to find balance against the bracing backdrop of acidity that is typical of Riesling from this region.
This is a top flight release here from one of Otago's finest artisan labels.
About Mount Edward
Mount Edward is a team of passionate winemakers/rabble-rousers who have banded together to form a collective that is considered at the forefront of the Central Otago avant-garde.
Duncan Forsyth is one of the founders and spearheads this revolutionary project, with Swiss winemaker Anna Riederer heading up the day-to-day duties and crafting the wines.
They've made plenty of noise since the project's inception in 2003 when Duncan met co-founder John Buchanan.
Though they don't take themselves too seriously, the wine themselves are very serious indeed and a receiving plenty of attention.
